The Kirschen 3358 Chip Carving Knife is a wonderfully versatile knife. While it is sold as a chip carving knife, Greg has kept one in his apron pockets over the last 30 years (protected by a cork shoved on the end), as he uses it as a Marking Knife – the perfect knife for marking out dovetails and other hand cut joints!
It is also the knife Greg uses when teaching Whittling skills to kids in Primary Schools. It is a fantastic whittling knife for small kids.
However is is also a very handy whittling knife when carving small details into your spoons and other carvings. Lettering and engraving, etc. It is, after all a chip carving knife!
We reckon it is a whole lot more than that. This is a very handy little knife indeed.
